salute Releases New Single ‘Storm’
Taken From His Forthcoming ‘My Heart’ Mini-Album (Mini album released on the 19th August)
Single Focus date: Friday 26th August 2016.
“exuberant and irresistible” – Pitchfork
“One the most exciting breakthrough producers of 2015” – i-D
“salute scraps the rules and redefines how to merge pop intention with wild experimentalism” – DIY
“salute has ideas to spare about crafting exciting and engaging dance music.” – The Guardian
Today sees hotly tipped artist/producer salute release new single ‘Storm’, the second track to be taken from his impending My Heart mini-album and the follow up to the D.R.A.M. featuring blog hit ‘One More Chance’. ‘Storm’ sees salute doing what he does best; perfectly balancing soulful melodic top lines & honeyed vocals with swirling synths and rattling percussion. The track is set to continue to cement salute’s position as one of the most exciting talents in electronica right now.
In addition to salute’s original cut there will be remixes of ‘Storm’ from Atlanta based hot property ABRA, who previously collaborated with salute on the track ‘Colourblind’ from his Gold Rush EP, and Ninja Tune’s very own experimentalist Lee Bannon.
Discussing the origins of the track salute states, "I'm mega proud of Storm. I kind of see it as the follow up to my last single Diamond that was a huge step up in my production and capacity to build a structured pop song. I worked with the same vocalist (Cleo Tighe) on that one, and together we reimagined an instrumental, which I'd always loved, in to something catchy that gets you going.”
salute is building up to the release of his My Heart mini-album on 19th August and will be recording a special Maida Vale session for Huw Stephens that will be airing week of release. On top of this, salute will be playing at Pitchfork Avant-Garde on October 26th, the opening party for the legendary Pitchfork Music Festival in Paris.
In addition to D.R.A.M., who features on ‘One More Chance’, the ‘My Heart’ mini-album features vocals from a wealth of breakthrough talent salute has connected with while releasing his music online over the past few years. ‘Weigh It Up’ features the silky vocals of Leeds based artist/producer Krrum, Brooklynite KAMAU brings a playful tone to ‘Forever (Pearls)’ with his syncopated flow and the enigmatic Yami effortlessly contributes a haunting vocal to ‘Yours & Mine’.
Hailing from Vienna and now living in Brighton, salute is an incredibly talented 20 year old who draws on a wide range of musical influences to create his genre blurring electronica. salute’s affinity for UK bass culture and US hip-hop & trap at an early age has helped shape his development as an artist whilst his upbringing in Austria has helped influence his unique sound that sets him apart from the pack. His previous release, October 2015’s ‘Gold Rush’ EP, featured a guest spot from prominent Atlanta talent ABRA and saw him pick up backing from a host of tastemakers such as The FADER, Dummy and i-D alongside support from BBC Radio One stalwarts Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart.
